Communication.....such a vital part of our existence with others.
When Mercury the planet of communication goes retrograde, our thought process and perceptions, our ability to gather and share information can become more tangled than at other times. The mental process seems to have turned inward and become deeper, harder to access. Information and forms of communication, from faxes and phone messages, to contracts and conversation can become confusing, misunderstood, even lost. Although it can seem frustrating at times, there is a gift to be found during this time. This can be a time of slowing down, stopping to reflect upon people, experiences, issues, or decisions, that may benefit from a little more time, a little more thought. A time to finish up some of the loose ends that begin showing up in a busy life. If at all possible, waiting to sign contracts or make major decisions until clear understanding of all angles of a binding situation are known.
To make the most of this time of reflection and consideration within your life, it's important to know where transiting Mercury is within your birthchart. For anyone that would like to know this information, please email me with your birth date, mm/dd/yy, time of birth (exact as possible) am/pm, and city and state of birth. I'll email you with the house location of Mercury retrograde in your birthchart.
There is a period of about 2 weeks before and after Mercury retrograde that can also slow things down and create confusion. Do be aware of this easing into and withdrawing energy as you navigate these retrograde phases.
